Attorney General Drew Edmondson has rolled out a plan to create jobs and grow Oklahoma's economy as he campaigns for the Democratic nomination for governor.
Edmondson revealed the 12-point plan on Thursday. It focuses on improving education, health care and transportation structures,
emphasizing medical research and technology and providing incentives to grow the state's compressed natural gas energy industry.
Edmondson says it's important that Oklahoma's next governor has
a detailed plan for repairing the state's economy, which is
suffering from low energy prices and the national economic
downturn. Edmondson is stepping down as attorney general after 16 years as the state's top law enforcement officer. He faces Lt. Gov. Jari
Askins in the July 27 primary for the Democratic nomination.
